VW stands behind their work :)

2005 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I bought an 04 2.0 litre convertable that was a piece of junk but VW stood behind their work and replaced it with an 05 turbo for a very very small contribution from myself and I could not be happier this car is awesome and so far has been trouble free :) for anyone buying one they are very low profile and I would suggest the 17 inch rims, they give you a bit more ground clearance, the 04 had 16's and drug her butt everywhere the 05 has 17's and never bottoms out. I would also recommend the turbo over the 2.0 litre it performs much beter and doest use any more gas than the slow 2.0 litre.

Best Features

10 speaker MP3 Player sterio in dash :) heated seats are awesome nothing like a hard day at work and then sitting on a heating pad :) and the turbo engine leaves everyone in the dust too :)

Worst Features

larger cup holder would be nice and something to stop the contents of the door pockets from rattling while the radio is cranked would also be pleasant :) would also love a GPS option.
